Phase 1a and individuals age 70+ are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine
Prisma Health is working rapidly to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to phase 1a individuals and SC residents age 70+. If you are eligible, fill out a form to request the vaccine.
This is the process to request a vaccine:
• Fill out our vaccine request form or call us at 833-2PRISMA (833-277-4762). Note that each person must have their own email. You can not register more than one person with the same email.
• You will receive an email from Marketing@PrismaHealth.org to confirm receipt of your online request form. This is not an appointment.
• You will receive an email from the CDC with a link to the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS). This link is unique to you and cannot be shared with anyone else.
• Click the link to the VAMS portal and create a username and password. Do not use Internet Explorer. Use Google Chrome, Safari or other web browser.
• Follow the instructions, which include completing a medical questionnaire and scheduling an appointment.
Vaccine Request Please note the following:
• Be patient. We are working hard on all the details in an environment that is changing rapidly. There may be a delay before you receive an email from the CDC to register and schedule your appointment using their VAMS portal.
• Do not submit multiple vaccine request forms or leave multiple messages on the phone line.
• Do not call individual physician practices, Prisma Health pharmacies or hospitals about vaccines.
• Appointments will be based on the limited supply of vaccine available.
